Hi everyone, I have a home theater room in the basement I built last spring and I want to connect it to my heating system. I'm looking for help on how to pick the space heating equipment to go with. How do you decide if you should use regular baseboard, low temp baseboard, or European style panel rads? The room is very well insulated (I built it as a "decoupled" sound room with 2 layers of 7/8 sheet rock glued together with a noise absorbing compound . The walls and ceilings actually "float" over an insulated stud wall - the ceiling is done in the same manner). The dimensions are 15x17 by a little over 7 foot ceiling. I used an online heat load calculator for this room, and I am coming up with 3500 btus. It's a little tough though, because this is not a typical room. For example, I am saying I have one outside wall, but in my case, there are the 2 sheets of Sheetrock, the insulated stud wall, a 6 inch air gap and then the actual outside wall which is my house and that is insulated as well... So, does 3500 btus seem possible for a room this size or should I be more pessimistic? . Finally, I have a long term project in mind regarding upgrading the baseboard in my entire home to stretch my storage capability. Anecdotally, I can only say that I am very happy with things so far, I get by on one fire a day, even in these cold days we are having lately and keeping the house at 70f from 5 am to 8 pm. I have 820 gallons of storage that will keep the house at these temps if I don't let it get below 135. But, I want to start off "right" with this room down stairs, and then over the next couple years, upgrade around the house, using what I hope to learn here and hopefully getting to where I could let those storage temps get lower. Storage will never go below 120f because it is my dhw. I had an energy audit done and the house is rated at 38k btus. My boiler is rated at 105k btus. Would it make sense to plan on 120f water, and install a product like this, knowing that my temps and flow will be a bit higher? http://www.houseneeds.com/shop/manuals/smith_heatingedgebrochure.pdf It looks like I could get 300 btu\ft at 120f and 1gpm ? So, if I did the heat calc for that room right, I would need about 12 linear feet? I'm thinking I could put in 2, 7 foot sections and be in pretty good shape? The other option could be just to go with regular baseboard which is cheaper per linear foot, and just line 3 walls which would give me 47 linear feet, but I don't know what to estimate the btus\ft at 120f for regular baseboard. Can you have too much? I guess this is a elegant vs brawn decision here, and I'm looking for some advice from the forum. What are your thoughts please?
